Azure is a very powerful cloud platform and it’s very suited to large tech environments. There’s stringent compliance and there’s also data protection requirements too. If you are planning your migration then it is worth thinking about the pros and the cons, so that you can begin to make the best decisions regarding your move.
You need to discuss the migration project with all of your stakeholders. You also need to calculate the TCO of your deployment so that you can think about the parts of your portfolio which will benefit from the migration. This will help you to evaluate the applications so you can effectively see how suited they are to the cloud environment. It will also help you to see the changes that you need to make so that you can allow them to run in the cloud properly. Ideally, you’ll need to think about networking, storage and scalability at this stage.
You will need to choose a migration strategy that suits your business. We can help you to do this. When you’ve settled on the best one for your company, you can then work to identify the tools and the technologies that will help you. Ideally, you need to start out small and you need to have Proof of Concept too. This will help you to make sure that you are providing high value to your business and it will also make it easier for you to complete the migration in general.
Even after you have deployed your application on the cloud and when you have it working as it should be, you then need to monitor the application so that you can see how it can be improved. Some of the key considerations include monitoring your costs so that you can see how you can optimize them. You also need to monitor your performance so that you can make sure that you are meeting the migration goals that you have set. Ideally, you need to make sure that you are reaching the same performance as you were with the on-premises model. Beyond the immediate goal of your migration, it’s important to plan the next steps. You need to reinvest so that you can then gain new capabilities. This is a very important stage, and it will also help you with any ongoing operations in the cloud too.
Secure and then Manage
Understand the security that comes with your new cloud application and make sure that you test it. This will help you to make sure that the new measures are working, and it will also help you to respond to any anomalies and even incidents too. You have to make sure that you are familiar with the comprehensive security recommendations and tools.
